ARC honors Roswell for green efforts including tree planting for demand-side energy reduction; Atlanta, GA

ARC honors Roswell for green efforts
This month, Roswell became the first municipality in the metro area certified under the ARC’s Green Communities Program on the Silver Level. The ARC launched the program last year to improve environmental stewardship.
The ARC said Roswell improved energy performance through various efforts, such as replacing traffic signals and school zone flashers with LED bulbs and using solar-power lighting at a dog park.
The city also created a public-private Tree Planting Partnership to improve the tree canopy; it has resulted in the planting of 788 hardwoods and 3,838 shrubs and flowers.
